    So very true. I can't wait for a couple of seagrass mats to get here so I can work on a playstand for the birds. There's nothing better than watching your bird have fun with a toy. :)

    I would do this every week! I'm a crafty person and love my fids, put these together to make things for the birds and I'm a happy girl. ;)


    My birds don't really scream, but they can be loud at times. For some reason, I like to hear them squawk and make noise. And Skittles and I like to "chat" with each other. He will chirp in a certain tune and I will whistle back with the same tune. Then he will chirp back again. I love when he does this. :heart:

    I can so relate to the one about getting more excited about shopping for your bird's more than for yourself.

    Yesterday my fiance let me know we were running low on pellets, and I got excited because now I have a legit excuse to just 'quickly run out to the bird store.' :lol:

    I’m elated when my wife says... do you think we should get Pilo something new to keep him happy?

    Me: Ok baby... if it will make you happy! :rolleyes:

    Well the upside is that when you are older people just think you're a little touched or loony and don't pay attention ... :batonthehead: :laughin:

    Oh, and Lady Jane, I don't know how this wasn't on the list, but I so relate to it, as well! Whenever my older sister and I go to the grocery store, I always get some type of veggie for the birds. Whenever I ask if I can, my sister rolls her eyes, but has a smile on her face, says yes, but then says how it seems so weird that I have to give my birds veggies, too. :)

    You know you're a bird person when...

    You have a chest freezer dedicated to bird food

    You bought power tools and dye to make your own blocks

    Your shirt jacket for around the house is down to 2 buttons (Annie...grrr)

    Some of your students get back homework with chunks torn out, which they love, BTW

    You research vacuums like some do cars

    Java trees are part of the living room "decor"

    You buy organic vegetables you rarely, if ever, eat

    4 boys in the family, all names start with J - we can't keep their names straight. But both of us get the birds' names straight ....

    You know you are a bird person when you share your glass of water with your bird!

    Or when visiting your family with your bird, your family serves you two glasses -one for you and one for your bird. And his has ice because they know he likes to play with it. :joyful:

    My teachers get reports with chunks out of them:rofl: Although smaller chunks, I just have lovies!


    When your homework is covered in wood chips, seed hulls, paper bits and what not:lol:

    When you never read in a comfortable position because there are birds after your book:D

    Whenever you use a toilet anywhere you always put the lid down if there is one.

    Note to self: When going potty in the dark remember the above comment because sitting on a cold toilet lid in the dark will bring you to your senses ASAP! :eeeek:
